I don’t think I could ever be 100% raw unless I wanted to forfeit any kind of social life, quit my job and live in a thatch hut in a jungle (or an isolated, possibly-illegal raw commune with a “prophet” LOL)... sorry, I don’t mean to offend any of you, but you see what I mean about the difficulty of 100% commitment.
That said, if I’m alone and I have easy access to raw food, I TOTALLY stick to eating raw fruits/vegs, NO PROBLEM. However, I make exceptions (and basically go all-out) when I’m with my friends, boyfriend, or at some work-based event where it would be weird if I didn’t have a paper plate with scones in my hands! :-)
I don’t want anyone, not even my family, to know that I’m eating raw (or trying to), so to keep them in the dark, I just eat whatever’s served. Plus, I don’t want to be rude or have to make excuses (which they will interpret as such), alienate myself or miss out, so I just eat whatever everyone else is eating.
Usually, I’m surrounded by people during weekends, so I deem the day completely phucked and I eat whatever – and later feel like schitt. And sometimes when I’m eating out during the week with people.
Eating raw, I’m so light, fresh and bouncy! :-) Can I still reap the long-term benefits even when I occasionally sow pasteurized seeds? Is anyone in the same situation?
